It’s no secret I love Canmore, and I absolutely love it when my clients join me there. These two brought their feisty dog Romeo with them for their engagement session…I always joke that working with dogs is a lot like working with toddlers! Romeo just wanted to explore, but that’s OK because so did we! I took these two on a little hike, and we enjoyed the beautiful warm weather in the mountains.  I can’t wait for their wedding this fall!

I was so flattered when Benson approached me to shoot images for his website refresh, and I love the work that the team created together.

Benson is a talented local pianist and I’ve been fortunate to hear him play at a few weddings now.  We were even treated to a performance on set!  Enjoy these images of Benson and make sure to check out his website http://bensonspiano.com/ to book him for your event. There is even a behind the scenes video from the shoot!

I love love love when I get to shoot in places I’ve never been, and even more when it’s locations that most people won’t get to.  For Katherine & Tom’s engagement session we went to the farm where Katherine boards her horses, and I immediately hunted around for fun spots for their session. It was one of the hottest days of the summer, and the whole session was incredibly relaxed.  Katherine & Tom are thoroughly awesome, and I can’t wait for their wedding this fall.  They didn’t mind me sending them into the deep brush of the forest, or crouching down by an old wood pile. Style & Lexi (the horses) and dogs Cooper and Tucker got in on the shoot as well! I love the outdoors, and this was so much fun to shoot.

Sheena & Rajat’s engagement photos happened just shortly before their wedding so that they could have a big canvas print on display at their reception! Their wedding was over the top gorgeous, and I’ll be sharing lots of photos shortly, but in the meantime here is a peek at their engagement shoot at the Fairmont Hotel MacDonald.  The Hotel Mac is one of my favourite places in the city to shoot and is available for rental for portrait sessions.

Newborn Baby Meera

July 21, 2015

 

Meera’s big sister is ready to show her the ropes! It was awesome working with this little family again – it always amazes me when I see newborns that I photographed years later as they grow into beautiful little toddlers! It’s a big compliment every time a family comes back to work with me.  These two little girls are so sweet.  Meera was about 3 weeks when she came in for her first big photoshoot! I usually try to photograph newborns around 7-10 days so they will sleep and let me squish them. Meera was alert and ready to party!

I wanted to post a quick outtake from the shoot – she was incredibly well behaved, and we had an awesome time, but I caught a little moment in between that made it look like she just couldn’t be bothered….

Sarah was one of those brides that knew from the start that she was going to hire me, and her wedding to Matt was one that I was really excited for this summer!  They had their struggles along the way including their chosen venue (the Edmonton Petroleum Club) closing its doors, but I can honestly say it was for the best because their ‘new’ venue, Northlands Expo Centre, was perfect. It was my first time shooting there, and I really liked the open feel and the modern colours and architecture.

Ever since we went down to Canmore for their engagement session, I knew these two would be up for whatever we wanted to do for photos. There are so many great little spots around the University of Alberta that were perfect for their wedding.  I had them climbing through water features, and roaming the halls of dark chemistry buildings, they didn’t mind the rain, and their entire bridal party was a total blast.

A couple of days after the wedding I got a message from one of the bridesmaids asking to meet to talk about her own wedding photography! When we got together she told me that a lot of the guests at the wedding thought that me and my second shooter Bruce were actually just family members!  I take that a a HUGE compliment, I love that we were able to have such a great connection with everyone at the wedding.  And I’ll look forward to seeing some of the same people at her wedding next summer!!

OK, on to pictures of a friendly dalmatian, fabulous veil, and one of the sweetest couples ever.  Matt & Sarah, thanks for being thoroughly fantastic!

Sarah told me she specifically bought a cathedral veil so that I could take some ‘epic’ photos of it…what do you think? How did I do?

Kooper is famous for his hugs – I got a few too! He’s such a friendly dog, and Sarah is an awesome dog mom.

This is a completely candid moment – as Sarah & Matt exited the ceremony they had a quiet moment while everyone filed out…it was completely as if the rest of the world melted away.  They LOVE each other and it all came together just beautifully.

Bruce and I had a fantastic time.  He continued his ongoing love affair with the lightstand, I got down on the ground as usual, helped to bustle Sarah’s dress…just another fun day for Team Shandro! I LOVE that Sarah has followed our hashtag #teamshandro on social media, and even included that on the seating chart.

Honourable mention to the groomsmen for being total goofballs, but not in the ‘we’re 5 and can’t pay attention’ kind of way =) I feel the need to point out that they came up with this pose on their own.

High school sweethearts Amy and Scott are a wonderful couple. I took their photos, along with their son Connor, in the winter last year, and this year I got to shoot their wedding at the Citadel Theatre!

They got ready at The Matrix Hotel downtown. Amy was busy in the morning, sewing by hand a bracelet to go with her wedding attire. In the end she had a little help from friends to get it all done on time. It was good that she kept herself busy to calm the nerves. While Scott was getting ready, he was anxious and excited. It’s great that they had Connor there to help calm HIS nerves!

I had never been to Edmonton’s own Yellowhead Brewery, so I couldn’t wait to shoot their reception there. The atmosphere and the food at the brewery is incredible, and we were able to take some great twilight pictures on the brewery floor. All of the love around the brewery must result in better beer. It had been awhile since I had shot a wedding with Melissa, and I was happy to get to spend the day with her.

Faruqa & Khalil’s moms were roommates decades ago in school, and 30 years later these two were married.  How’s THAT for a love story?

Faruqa is quiet, organized, and lovely. Khalil is expressive, bubbly, and full of joy!  Their strengths complement each other perfectly.  Their wedding was in between Edmonton and Calgary, and over the few days I spent with them I had an absolute blast.

The reception in Calgary was absolutely gorgeous, and it was a pleasure working with Claudette from Claudette Marie Events for the first time.  One thing that I loved about Faruqa & Khalil’s wedding is that it was colourful, and funny, and quirky, but still traditional.  They really got to express themselves and make sure everyone had a great time.  From a flash mob to a lip sync battle the day was full of surprises!

Thanks to my second shooters Tessa and Stefan for helping me out!

M & B’s wedding had guests flying to Edmonton from all over the world, including the bride and groom!  Planning a wedding from another country can be difficult, and these two were in good hands with Jenna from Cocktails and Details in their corner and M’s mom here in Edmonton to help out.

We love M’s blingy dress for the Christian ceremony, and everyone embraced the Hindu traditions and celebrations on the second ceremony!  There is some buzz going around that Fort Edmonton Park will unfortunately be closing for a couple of years for upgrades  – we’ll be waiting anxiously for it to reopen!

The reception at Sutton Place was full of love and laughter, and we were so excited to be a part of it.

Sue-Ny and Danny were married in her church, the New Apostolic Church on Connors road. Family and friends came, many from long distances to witness their marriage.

During the ceremony, Danny surprised Sue-Ny with a new ring at the altar!

We went to a lookout at the top of the River Valley for some pictures so that their out of town friends can family could see the beauty of Edmonton in their pictures. We also visited the new plaza in front of the Federal Building for a great view of the Alberta Legislature building.

After their couples photos we went to Maharaja Banquet Hall for the reception. Sue-Ny and Sanny’s loved ones helped them to pull off a beautiful DIY party. It is apparent how close everyone at the wedding is. Friends and family in the wedding speeches told great stories going back to their childhood.
